Overview

Escape Games are Puzzle Room Adventures! Escape Games Live is Central PA's most experienced "escape room" facility. We are located in the heart of downtown York, with free parking, two comfortable lounges for up to 50 people, and 5 different meticulously designed escape room experiences! We put you and your friends or family into a room and see if you can solve a Mystery and find the key in 60 minutes or less. There is nothing even slightly scary about it. (You are not actually locked in.) It is a hilariously fun and exhilarating experience! Unlike most escape games, all of our rooms are private and for your group only. You will never have to play with strangers. Many business and school groups have played our rooms and enjoyed our hospitality. We also let everyone finish their game regardless of how long it takes, so your experience will be satisfying regardless of a 60 minute escape or not! Play "Escape the 70s" and enter a world of shag carpets, vinyl albums and board games. Or work the case in a 1950s detective's office in, "The Precinct". Our toughest room is "Sherlock's Office" an elegant Victorian gentleman's office where Sherlock has left you a few challenges. Our two newest rooms are innovations that have very few equals in the world of escape games: "Mojo's Museum" is a crazy kid's escape room where they play instruments, decode toys and experience optical oddities. "Showdown" is a complex "double room" where two groups both compete and cooperate through a set of jail bars as they race to escape! Escape games are an escape from the phone and the mouse! Come EXPERIENCE the exhilaration of Escape Games Live!

There were 8 of us that went for a friends night out and we had a great time! Price was reasonable when split between us all. Room was challenging and setup very well. We will definitely be going back.
